Paramedic’s Father: “My son thought he wouldn’t be shot wearing his vest.” | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Paramedic’s Father: “My son thought he wouldn’t be shot wearing his vest.”

A young paramedic volunteer was killed by Israeli fire, Wednesday morning, during violent confrontations that broke out in Dehehisheh refugee camp, in the south of Bethlehem, while wearing his medical relief uniform.

The father of Sajed Mezher, Abdul-Hakeem Mezher, narrated to PNN the last moments of the young man’s life and his determination to extend a helping hand to the wounded youth.

Abdul-Hakeem said that he woke up at dawn and was preparing his sons to go to their schools. Among them was Sajed, who was studying for a university exam. At the outbreak of confrontations, Sajed insisted on going out and helping the injured with the paramedic crews.

“I begged him not to leave, I told him that the soldiers wouldn’t care if he was wearing a medical vest or not, but he insisted on going. He thought they wouldn’t shoot someone wearing a medical vest,” the father said.
